Raymond Donat Memorial Fund

My brother, Raymond Paul Donat Jr., passed away unexpectedly at the age of 49 on Saturday Feb 3rd. While our family is saddened by his passing, we will remember Ray for being passionate about motorcycles, sports, “Ganja”, having a kind heart and a big laugh. Ray grew up in Connecticut but had relocated to Iowa. We all come in to this world and have to leave it too. It’s what we do with that time in between that matters and how we affect our loved ones. Our family plans to celebrate Ray’s life with his friends in both Iowa and Connecticut. We expect there will be plenty of tears and laughs alike.  Hoping to raise money to assist the family with cremation and memorial services.
